World Series artifacts on display

The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown will open the latest edition of its Autumn Glory exhibit today, documenting Boston’s third Fall Classic title in 10 seasons.

Some artifacts that will be on display are the bat used by World Series MVP David Ortiz in the postseason; the spikes worn throughout the World Series by closer Koji Uehara; the jacket worn in Game 6 by Red Sox Manager John Farrell; the fake beard Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk wore when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch in Game 6; the bat and batting gloves used by Jonny Gomes in Game 4, when his three-run homer gave Boston the win; and the Number “0” from Fenway Park’s scoreboard at end of Game 6.

The 2013 World Series exhibit in Autumn Glory will be on display through the conclusion of the 2014 Major League Baseball postseason. Entrance to the Autumn Glory exhibit is included with admission.

For more information, call 888-HALL-OF-FAME (888-425-5633) or 607-547-7200, or visit the website baseballhall.org.

Red Sox legends to visit Hall

Boston Red Sox radio voice Joe Castiglione and former Red Sox manager Joe Morgan will be featured in a Voices of the Game event at 11 a.m. Dec. 14 at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

The event will take place in the Hall’s Bullpen Theater. Seating is available on a first-come basis. Tickets are included with regular admission to the Hall.

Castiglione will begin his 32nd season on Red Sox radio in 2014, tying him with the late Ned Martin for the longest tenure in team history.

Morgan managed the Red Sox from 1988-91, leading Boston to American League East titles in 1988 and 1990 and finishing in the top four in AL Manager of the Year voting three times.
